Wander and the Colossus

In case you're unfamiliar with Shadow of the Colossus, it's a videogame for the PS2. This is my take on it. :)

I just want to say that this is a rather rough concept, or "pencil test," type of film. I've had this idea for awhile and I would have liked to fully flesh it out (My original intention was that it might fool viewers into thinking that it was going to be a really a film) but I simply don't have the time.

Aside from the music, I did everything for this film. So yes, I did do voices(which I apologize for having poor quality), the drawings, and the story.

Speaking of which, the story is based on the original but is not exactly the same. I'd like to say that I've expanded it. If you've played the game, you know how ambiguous and open to interpretation it is. I've taken the backstory which I imagined and put them into this film, hoping to give the original's story some added character development and drama.

This is a film which I hope promotes the idea that videogames can in fact be art. This film is a visualization of my experience while playing the game. It is my interpretation and my reaction to the original work. I hope you enjoy it! Thank you

I'm sure lots of people will notice that the protagonist's name is Wander. Check Wikipedia and you'll discover that "Wanda" was not the female's name but male lead's.

This is amazing! You should make a series based off of this. I bet it will be very good.

Amazing, dude

I quite liked this animation, you draw really well.Shadow of the colossus is awesome!
I really like your style of drawing

Nicly done

I played shadow of the colossus and it was amazing i still love to listen to the music from it

What the movie should be

Unfortunately, it probably won't come anywhere near what you envisioned in this "fake" trailer. Really though, an animated film series would be far better than live action that'll cut it all down to stinkin' 2 hours.

It's probably amazing! But I'll never know...

Only reason it gets 0/5 and 0/10 is because it don't even load! Once the bar is full nothing happens, probably just a bug. Anyway, being a fan of Shadow Of The Colossus I'd probably really like this! So if I'd seen it I'd probably say 9/10 and 4/5!

Soz once again...
